Charles | 1 comments Hi, I've written (nearly) ten books of a graphic novel and would love to get some feedback. Hard to estimate word count but each book is about 40-50 pages & sorry, but no illustrations beyond roughs for #1. I can send typed pdfs of layouts.

It's called Super Old People and you can probably get the gist from there. Suffice it to say that it would be important to me to have the input of a somewhat older person (50+). Nuthin' against the younger folk (beyond their taste in music, clothes and entertainment) just sayin....

Since it's not straight prose, rates don't seem straightforward but I'm open to reasonable offers.

I'd love some feedback at a high & medium level:
-Is the premise engaging?
-Am I dealing OK with the limitations that come with the idea?
-What do you think about the characters?
-Tonally, what do you think about the balance of the serious and the less serious?
-What do you think about the scale of the drama that unfolds?

I'm truly looking for honest feedback on this. Since my dog is the only one that's read it so far I'm really looking forward to your opinions. Thanks in advance!

Tabitha Gibson | 49 comments Hi,

I am a young person but have spent a reasonable amount of time around people not so young. I’d love to have a look at your work and I’d of course also be willing to work out a reasonable and flexible rate for the feedback.
If interested please contact me at
